Prayer for Revelation
“Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3
Lord, show me a revelation of Your Word and Your will. Cause the obscure and confusing things to become clear to me. Expound my current understanding of Your Word to deeper levels of insight and application. Give me a definite understanding of what Your Word means, and how I am to apply it to my life, in my time and my culture. Cause me to see the world through its truths instead of the image the world wishes me to see. Reveal Your will to me so I will know how to pray effectively both for Your cause and for my own life, causing me to come into alignment with You, where I am fruitful and blessed.
Lord, show me a revelation of Your ways. Teach me the things You like and desire. Teach me how You like to be worshipped and served. Cause me to understand reasons why You do the things you do, and what You desire to still yet do. Let this understanding breed delight in the deepest places of my soul, causing me to hunger even more after Your Spirit and Your Word, day and night. Make me to become satisfied each time I spend time in Your Word and Your presence, where all other things that used to satisfy fail to fill me any longer. Cause my mind to think on Your ways throughout my day, and see life through Your eyes.
Lord, show me a revelation of Your glory. Reveal to me things You have done – the miracles, signs, and wonders – no matter how big or small they might seem. Cause me to search for Your glory, not just happen upon it. Reveal how You work in nature, through our senses, life experiences, and through others, where I am aware of it and become a verbal witness of it. Let me not steal Your glory by claiming ownership of Your work, or by withholding honor that is due You. Affect me with Your glory! As I meditate on it, let it leave me in awe and wonder, and with a hunger to see more of it, where it saturates my thinking, my words, and my prayers. Let Your glory create a deepset joy in my heart, knowing that You are my Father – You are absolutely pure, good, and beyond sufficient explanation – and I am Your child!
Lord, show me a revelation of the work of the enemy. Cause me to become aware of how, when, and where the enemy is at work. Cause me to know when others are causing chaos as opposed to when the enemy is attacking. Let my discernment be accurate and my intuition be acute. Reveal the tactics and strategy of the enemy, and the hidden plans and traps that lay in wait so I can evade destruction by Your wisdom. Cause me to see the smokescreen of deception the enemy displays to get me off focus and in despair. Cause me to discern the voice of the enemy and know which of Your Words to fight back with. Your Word is my weapon, and I therefore I will declare it! Give me understanding of how and when to respond when the enemy comes against those I am close to. Let me not react with haste or emotion, but rather with Your perfect timing and strategy. Cause me to remember that in the end You win. No matter how strong the battle, no matter how long the fight, no matter how often the enemy claims victory, no matter how much carnage I see, I will remember that You are God of the Living and not the dead. You are the Almighty and You will NOT give Your glory to another!
